Compromise & Inner Thighs

Compromise & Inner Thighs

I took a couple days off from running because the inside of my right knee was bugging me. Nothing debilitating; just playing it safe. I’ve been doing a lot of extra stretching at work, a place where I sit at a desk for most of the day’s 8 or 9 hours. Some days the only time I get up to walk is to pee (which I do in the bathroom, not while I walk).

Buffalo Chickpea Chili

Buffalo Chickpea Chili

It’s been unseasonably warm ’round these parts, so what better time to post a good old chili recipe, am I right?! I love chili, and while I enjoy the recipe I’ve made for years, as soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to try it.

Beach Day

Beach Day

It’s been twelve hours since I ran this morning, and I’m finally getting around to writing about it. I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to get done today, including a whole lot of cooking.

Should’ve cooked your own stockpile. Not my fault you didn’t.

Superhero Muffins

Superhero Muffins

Superhero Muffins are THE runner’s food of the moment. Almost every runner whose blog I follow has made them, and I will NOT be left out in the cold. The recipe comes from Run Fast Eat Slow, a lovely cookbook written by elite runner & 2017 NYC Marathon champion Shalane Flanagan and chef & food writer Elyse Kopecky.

I bought this cookbook in late December with the hopes of not only learning how to cook food specifically for runners, but just learning how to cook… other stuff. I tend to cook the same things over and over, and I usually don’t grow tired of eating the same things over and over until I do, and then I immediately want to find ways to mix things up. So I bought the book.
